New partnership gives apparel designers and manufacturers in the region access to powerful collaboration software that lowers production costs and speeds time to market.
SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico, Nov. 17, 2022 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- At an event Tuesday, 3D technology innovator Embodee and digital manufacturing process developer Helasauq Technology Pvt Ltd announced their plans to expand the availability of the revolutionary Orchids web platform in South Asia. Helasauq will act as the region's distributor of Orchids. The two companies will use their expertise to help fashion design businesses streamline their supply chains with the online collaboration and publishing platform.
Embodee's Orchids web platform provides easy-to-use online tools that allow a full range of stakeholders in fashion design to work together in real-time. From 3D and 2D designers to supply chain pros, merchandisers, salespeople, marketers, and manufacturers, anyone can use Orchids to make 3D apparel creation faster, more flexible, and more efficient. Teams working in Orchids can create variants, manage digital assets, and provide feedback—all without the need for expertise in 3D design tools.
Orchids is helping apparel businesses around the globe develop new products faster. In Sri Lanka in particular, Orchids has worked with apparel solutions provider Norlanka to scale 3D production and meet the ever-increasing demands of brands. The online platform improves supply chains and brings products to market faster with fewer time-consuming design reviews and less need for costly physical samples.
"We're thrilled to partner with Helasauq to expand our presence in South Asia," said Embodee Founder and CEO André Wolper. "As home to a number of apparel manufacturing powerhouses in places like Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, India, and Pakistan, this region opens up a world of opportunities for us. Establishing a larger presence here with Helasauq will not only help us reach more customers but also provide regional businesses with a new way to help them stay competitive. It's a win-win-win situation. We get access to new customers, Helasauq expands their offerings, and design businesses get a powerful new way to streamline their product development processes."
In an update unveiled earlier this month, Embodee expanded Orchids' capabilities with one of their biggest releases to date. Teams using the Orchids platform now have access to these new, time-saving features:
- Product Download Optimization and Presets: Users can now fine-tune settings for model downloads for use in product marketing, eCommerce, AR/VR, virtual fit, and the metaverse.
- Color Management on Create Tab: Pro users can now add, remove, and reorder colors by clicking a contextual menu next to each colorizable component.
- Graphic Layers: Multiple graphics can now be added to a single mesh and layered for advanced variant design.
- 2D Print & Graphic Editor: Graphic edge distance measuring improves communication of graphic specs to factories, and manual input of measurements allows for greater precision.
- Spaces: Arrow annotations help collaborators communicate more effectively, and user interface enhancements make Spaces simpler and more effective.
